Together the findings indicate that Pf p52−/p36− GAP was severely but not completely attenuated. All six volunteers developed antibodies to CSP. Furthermore, IFN-γ responses to whole sporozoites and multiple antigens were elicited in 5 of 6 volunteers, with both CD4 and CD8 cell cytokine production detected

Evidence for the occurrence of two sympatric sibling species within the Anopheles (Kerteszia) cruzii complex in southeast Brazil and the detection of asymmetric introgression between them using a multilocus analysis

The analyses were performed first comparing Florianópolis and Itatiaia, and then comparing the two putative sympatric incipient species from Itatiaia (Itatiaia A and Itatiaia B). The analysis revealed high FST values between Florianópolis and Itatiaia (considering Itatiaia A and B together) and also between the sympatric Itatiaia A and Itatiaia B, irrespective of their function.
